About Us – In 1981 Rogério Ferreira da Silva, co-founder of Adplast and holder of great experience in the thermoplastics business since 1961, founded the company called Adiscolor. The company’s objective is to supply colorants and additives to the Portuguese plastics manufacturing industry.
Portugal, traditional producer of sisal ropes and cables since the 15th century, has not lost its leadership in this field, but has only adapted to the inevitable gradual replacement of sisal by synthetics. And we, Adiscolor, are proud to have contributed in a decisive and very effective way with the supply of new products, of enormous quality, but requiring a lot of technical and logistic support.
Over the course of 39 years, Rogério Ferreira da Silva has developed business relationships with the prestigious A. Schulman Plastics Group, which originated in the United States. Schulman Plastics Group, which originated in the United States of America, but is strongly developing in Europe, with production units in Belgium, Germany, England, France and Italy, among others. Adiscolor, since its formation, has functioned as an affiliate of the A. Schulman Plastics group in a close partnership relationship.
In 1989, a new company was created – Baerlocher Química Portuguesa, Lda.
